H*t Chicken Sh**t Dinner

  • The Post East 1701 Fatherland Street Nashville, TN, 37206 United States (map)
 

A project by the chef and cultural critic Tunde Wey, H*t Chicken Sh**t is designed as a critique of the gentrification of Nashville, with the main dish operating as a metaphor for the continued appropriation of Black culture (foodways) and wealth (labor and land). In this project, Wey asks, “What if gentrification wasn't inevitable? What if there was another way?”

On July 19, Wey will host a dinner at The Post East and engage guests in dialogue about gentrification and its racialized peculiarities in Nashville. The dinner conversation, which will be robust and candid, presupposes that there is a solution to the problem of gentrification. Wey will share the way forward with dinner guests.

This is a ticketed event priced at $55 per person —“gentrification prices," according to the chef — targeting the demographic of relatively affluent consumers (as measured in wealth, education, or class privilege) who benefit often and considerably from gentrification.
